I went back down Hawk Mountain and back tracked to Jones Creek. It was beautiful back in there and had some nice challenging spots...
I guess I could install a hitch right here.
The XV can handle it no problem..
Trout stream and waterfall...
Aww, Its my baby's first water crossing...
Now its her third time and she stopping for glamor shots!
View from the cabin. I love the Georgia mountain habitat.
The XV never slipped. Not even once.
I found a snake skin in the ditch... Must have been a big one. I never seen a completely intact skin before. Usually they are in pieces. Pretty cool.
On the way out I was flying on a down hill section pretending to be a wannabe rally driver and almost nailed a turkey! I slammed on brakes to have a look. There were two Toms fighting over a hen and they were more concerned with each other than with me. I grabbed the phone and took the video. Look closely in the center of the video, one turkey backs up and the other follows it and fans its tail feathers. Its a rare sight.
What a great day in the woods. Fresh mountain air, wildlife, offroading in my new car. Good times. Hope you enjoyed my little journey.
